Ep. 430: Friday the 13th (2009)

October 28th, 2021

Shock10ber comes to a close as we take on one of the two biggest horror franchises we've yet to discuss, Friday the 13th. On this concluding chapter of our annual horror marathon, we dive into the slasher genre and all its messy glory. Race and misogyny start us off, and then we move into a discussion of Platinum Dunes and the CW, small town secrets, and minding each others business.

Ep. 429: The Amityville Horror (2005)

October 25th, 2021

Shock10ber rolls on with ghosts, haunted houses, genocide, and Ryan Reynolds's 18-pack abs. That's right, we're taking a look at the 2005 remake of the somewhat classic haunted house film, The Amityville Horror. It's our second Reynolds vehicle in just a few months, and so we once again dive deep into the career and trajectory of the man who would be Deadpool. We also talk at length about movies based on true stories or "true" stories and how genre and direction impact the delivery of those stories. So, join us at the table and get ready for another spine-tingling discussion on the GenreCast!

Ep. 428: Dawn of the Dead (2004)

October 14th, 2021

Shock10ber: Rise of the Remakes continues on this week with the 2004 take on George Romero's classic, Dawn of the Dead. Notable as the first feature film from an unknown director named Zach Snyder, Dawn of the Dead also aided in reviving the zombie genre for a new generation. We talk about formalism and realism, whether the movie is too thin or if it does have something to say, the approach to fast and slow zombies, and much, much more as we take on this reanimated remake.

October 7th, 2021

Shock10ber: Rise of the Remake rolls on with the 2001 remake of William Castle's cult film Thir13en Ghosts. With a cast featuring Tony Shalhoub, F. Murray Abraham, Matthew Lillard, and Shannon Elizabeth, Thir13en Ghosts was the second film from the Dark Castle production banner. This remake dresses up the barebones original with a 2000s aesthetic and top notch production design. We talk all about remakes, economics, foreshadowing true crime podcasts, and crossover entertainers. Tune in now to hear all of our thoughts on Thir13en Ghosts, and find out what's next as our Shocktober Spook-tacular continues!

Ep. 426: Dracula 2000 (2000)

October 3rd, 2021

It's our 10th annual Shocktober Marathon! It's the spookiest time of the year. And this year is SHOCK10BER: Rise of the Reboot! We're landing in the first decade of the new millennium to discuss the spate of reboots that occurred. To start us off, we take a look at the Wes Craven Presents... Dracula 2000 title starring Gerard Butler, Omar Epps, Jennifer Esposito, Christopher Plummer, and more! This updated take has all the hallmarks of the 2000s style of movie making, so we take a look at that style, we discuss the role of the producer as name above the title, and we crack open the movie's take on Dracula's origins. It's our favorite time of the year as we get spooky all month long, so join us now... if you dare...
